UPDATED: Sunday Gravel Ride | May 22 at Noon

Ride is ON! It’s quite cool, dress in layers. We’ll finish at 17 degrees in the sun.

7:00 am weather update… ride is postponed until 12 noon today. This will mean some of you can’t make it, but some still will. We’re trying to make the best of the bad weather – better than cancelling. All else stays the same. Please meet at the GYMC and be ready to pedal at 12 noon if you can make it. Weather is looking far more appealing from there. Hope to see you then.

5:30 am weather update… radar is looking promising, fingers crossed… final call at 7.

10:00 pm the night before: Still not completely clear, weather wise, one way or the other… we’ll have a final call at 7 am Sunday morning as to how this ride will proceed or not. Sleep well, and remember, your bike dreams of being ridden when it’s not!

6:00 pm Saturday afternoon, the prediction is rain for Sunday morning, but the radar indicates it might miss us. The forecast for the weekend has been less than accurate so far. If it is just a matter of waiting out the rain an hour or two, the start time may be adjusted rather than cancelling altogether. Stay tuned, we will keep updating this post as the start time grows nearer.

This route has butter tarts in it, plus a lot of gravel, but not in the same bite! We’ll be stopping at the Belwood Country Market for some of the best butter tarts we’ve ever had!

Perhaps you have noticed by now that we are steadily creeping up our gravel distances each week (80 km for this Sunday) in preparation for the 90 km BGR on June 5th. Not to worry about the length here, look at the elevation profile, you will practically be coasting all the way home!

Extra challenge: Load the route into your Bike Computer – details can be found here. And turn off ‘Route Recalculation’ in the ‘Navigation’ settings of your bike computer.

Dress for the conditions – check out our new weather forecast page. A tail light is never a bad idea either. Disclaimer: Depending on rider turn out, some Speed Groups may have to be combined. We’re looking forward to having you along!
